What No One Tells You About Getting A Cat

What No One Tells You About Getting A Cat

You may think it's easy, but there's a lot more behind being a cat parent than you think.

Cats are one of the most joyous creatures on the face of this Earth. From their little bean pads to the twitching whiskers, any time you look at them you're instantly filled with glee.

If you have the thought of adopting one, you might not think twice about the antics that come along with it. These are the untold things that come with your new cat child.

They have different meows

From the "I don't care that it's 3 am, I'm hungry" meow to the "Why aren't you giving me the attention I'm not sure I want"meow, you get to learn them, just like a baby and its different cries.

They will knock over everything

Oh, I'm sorry, this is your favorite glass? It would be a shame if.... something were to happen to it.....

Sometimes they'll want to cuddle. Most of the time, they won't

Or they'll make it seem like they want to cuddle and suddenly they won't nothing to do with you

They can be expensive

Toys, litter, food, vet bills. Cats aren't just something to have. You need to be able to take care of them and all of their needs.

But, they'll find more joy in bottle caps or wrappers than they ever will with the toys you buy them

Save some cash, keep your caps.

Your curtains mean nothing to them

I hope you like that torn look in your curtains, or the bends in the blinds.

There's no such thing as personal space

They aren't afraid to climb right into your lap when you're sitting on the toilet.

They're the best excuse to get out of plans

Wow, I would LOVE to, but i really need to get home and feed my at.

You'll realize that you've never loved something so much

My best friend has four paws.

Sunset Skies And Salty Skin

These pictures will almooooost make you feel like you're on vacation.

Everyone has a happy place right? Mine is by a beach. Always has been, always will.

I think the beach has something magical about it and it always has a way of making any big problem seem small. My family goes to the beach be it rainy, sunny, cold or hot- Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter. I think that's why it's my go-to place.

But Chloe, please tell us why you're going on and on about the beach.

Well, I just spent a week of my Spring Break at the beach and turns out it wasn't enough time. I'm extremely nostalgic right about now.

Can you tell?

Considering I'm going through a very hard time and not dealing well with spring break withdrawal, I thought I would try a little experiment.

I'm gonna use Odyssey as my therapy.


Below is a compilation of pretty Sunset pictures that I've taken in the past. I'm hoping that by just viewing the image, it'll help me (and hopefully you as well) make it through the next couple of weeks (i.e. until Summer).

Now, excuse me while I play background music that sounds like I'm in the Caribbean and continue to stare at these pictures until I magically get transported back to a beach somewhere.

Palma de Mallorca, Spain: I would say the view isn't that shabby...

Cahors, France: Can you say Cotton candy skies?

Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina: My all time happy place.

Somewhere along the Camino de Santiago in Spain. But here's the catch: this is actually a sunrise picture — I just thought it was pretty.

Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina: Did I tell you guys that this is my happy place? No? Because it is.

Kennedy Center, Washington D.C.: Not minding these views at all.

Somewhere along the coast in Maryland: One of the top sunsets I've ever seen, the pictures don't do it justice.

Well, turns out the pictures weren't the 100% reality but they were close enough. I guess I'll just have to content myself with 1) staycation 2) Charlottesville sunsets. Which 1) can be a lot of fun, time to explore Charlottesville as much as I can until I graduate and 2) the sunsets here are also out of this world.

I guess it's time to stop thinking the grass is greener on the other side and appreciating what I have in front of me!

But hey, I'm human and I like tropical drinks on sandy beaches. Can ya blame me?
